Ascent Trip Report

I started the trip close to 4 pm on the 8th of July at the Dutch Flat Trailhead. From the trailhead I hiked up the trail approx 6 miles to the beginning of the north ridge leading up to the summit of Peak 8428. I set up camp about midway up the ridge at approx 9pm. On the 9th I started from the camp and continued up to the summit of Peak 8428. From the summit of Peak 8428 I made a long traverse over to the southwest ridge of Twin Mountain. I continued up the ridge to the summit of Twin then traversed across then down the northeast ridge back to the Dutch Flat trail approx .4 mile from the trailhead. (I would NOT recommend climbing up the northeast ridge from Dutch Flat trail, it's loaded with downfall. It also requires a few creek crossings which in July were fairly high)
